White buckeye or Texas buckeye is a small, multi-trunked tree, 10-25 ft., which can reach 50 ft. It is similar to Ohio buckeye but smaller in all parts. Clusters of pale-yellow blooms; palmately compound, glossy leaves; and an open-spreading crown are the tree’s landscape attributes. White buckeye is deciduous.
Texas Buckeye is distinguishable by the large number of narrow leaflets and usually shrubby size. It was formerly considered the species A. arguta; that Latin species name, meaning sharp, referred to the sharply toothed leaflets. It is now classified as a western shrubby variety of Ohio Buckeye. The common name of the genus is suggested by the large, rounded, dark brown seed with a white spot or scar at the base.
